Default will 22 inch rims fit?

I want to put 22s on my 09 LT1, i have read that you can and i have read that you cannot put 22s on my car. Anyone have testimonies on putting 22s on their LT1 with no medications.

I find it hard to believe you'd need "medications" anyway but meditations are always good.
